• Well Written Goals have at least 3 parts
Action, Level, Deadline
“I will sell 10 widgets by six o’clock”

• A manager increases their ‘Emotional Intelligence’ by being more
aware of, and in control of their emotional responses.
• At SHB we measure a manager’s ‘EI’ thru surveys where the
employees rate them on their ability to Motivate (‘Feel Good’).
• Healthy People seek positive environments, and positive
relationships that keep them feeling appreciated and safe
• Unhealthy People seek negative environments, and volatile
relationships that keep them feeling anxious and argumentative
• At SHB we are all doing the best we can to attract, recruit,
develop and retain those with healthy predispositions.
The Regal Response
• L Listen to the guest concern completely
Don’t interrupt, Nod, Keep eye contact.
• A Apologize for the inconvenience
As the guest continues- agree with aspects of their
story to gain credibility. Slip in apologies as they
continue. Summarize the issue when they are done
• S Solve the problem and serve the guest
Explain to the guest what your plan of action is.
Let them know to ask for you personally (Your
Name) if the problem is still not resolved.
• T Thank them for their patience and understanding
This is where you ‘win the guest over’. Focus more
on making sure they left feeling they can count on
you; opposed to whether they were right or wrong.
Individual and Collective
• People have an ‘Individual Identity’ which needs to
“Afiya has stepped up with projects and our team is
better for it”
• People have a ‘Collective Identity’ which needs to be
“SHB- Many people, One Team; 25 years and still going
• Effective leaders NURTURE both teammate Identities

Leadership Values &
Impact on Culture
I drew this up to illustrate clearly what a system’s process flow looks like. Typically, the
organization is looking for a specific result, and then the leader must decide how she is going
to organize people and tasks in order to accomplish/improve the team results.
Many business books define a Work Culture as the end result of a 1) Leader Values 2) Worker
Attitudes 3) & Worker Behaviors. As you can imagine, this important blend can have a huge
impact on team results.
I try and reflect on my values and actions each day in an effort to meet the needs of our
organization as well as those of our workers.
• A Transformational Leaders is devoted to improving performance thru
the process of genuine relationship building; person by person.
• These leaders involve, inspire, and share methods in an effort to
transform teammates into higher functioning human beings
• These individuals put more emphasis on the process of education and
mentoring over the success of any one personal and team ‘transaction’
• These benevolent leaders connect emotionally with their teammates,
and are careful to protect worker self esteem when giving feedback
• Transformational leaders go ‘brain to brain’ with players to increase
morale, create goals, and strategize together about the most effective
ways to achieve personal and organizational objectives.
• Skill Variety
Thru scheduling and changing what we ask
workers to do from shift to shift.
• Task Identity
By reviewing contracts, scripts, meeting topics
repeatedly until actions become habits
• Task Significance
By tying in how a regal challenge is linked to a
current personal goal or future professional one
By playing your position with confidence and by
trusting workers and giving them space to take
risks and grow
By offering useful feedback in a neutral or
positive way. By showing how a worker can use
their strengths to tackle challenges thru goal
setting, assessment, and coaching

When choosing a company to work for- make sure their values are in line
with your own values. What does that company stand for? What products
are they selling? How do they treat their people?. What type of tasks are
required for you to handle? Is the job description in line with your DNA? Is
the culture in line with your upbringing? If so- you have what is called
‘congruency’, and chances are that you experience a great deal of
satisfaction at work because your goals are properly aligned with the
When a worker feels that their values are not in line with those of the
organization, they can feel tension and frustration. These negative feelings
can lead to lower performance, and other negative workplace behaviors. If
left unresolved, this cycle of conflict will create a toxic environment which
leaves both workers and supervisors feeling unhealthy.
At SHB, I know we sometimes feel at odds with certain regal decisions; but on
the other hand we have a great deal of autonomy which allows us to pursue
mentoring and other people first community service projects.
• A very fast way of establishing rapport with employees is through the use of asking
simple questions. This type of work place ‘engagement’ is highly effective for
transferring knowledge between you and your coworkers.
• A good question which facilitates sharing is “What motivates you most at work?” The
exchange that follows the question is likely to: show an employee that you care, gives
you an opportunity to put a worker in a favored position, teaches you something about
that person and your work environment. A worker is likely to respond to this question
with something that motivates them like “Learning new things”.
• Another effective question to ask is “What one or two changes can we make which
would alleviate stress for you at work?” Here an employee is likely to respond with
something that de-motivates them like “I would schedule more workers during a rush”.
• In both cases you as the leader can help the employee. If there is a situation that cannot
be helped like “I hate working Saturdays” you at least have an opportunity to explain
why we have to keep things the way they are. Even in this scenario you can use the
opportunity to thank your coworker, and maybe even share with them how you at times
feel the same way about a particular policy.

The Occupational/Personal Success Connection
Korman, and Self Esteem
• Individuals have a high tendency to achieve to the level
that their leaders believe they can.
• Past performances (school, exercise, work) become
habit. Effective Coaching can help those with a habit of
poor performance to break the cycle.
• The more a person succeeds in the past, the more they
are likely to succeed in the future. Same is true with
• Groups (collective Identity) that ‘win’ in the past- are
likely to ‘win’ in the future. Same is true with failure.
• Cultures that protect, nurture, cultivate self esteem are
healthier and more productive than those that do not.
People and Production Max
•The Whole Point of our manager “MC” ratings system is to ensure that we
are maximizing our ability to make employees feel great while at the same
time making the company as much money as possible.
•SHB scores a 9.9 on the management grid below day in, and day out.
G.R.O.W. Discussions & Goal Setting
Managers & Employees sit together and work on setting employee goals that
will help lift team production
Managers & Employees identify strengths that have led to the reality of the
employee’s overall performance
• Opportunities (avoid the terms ‘weakness’ or ‘weaknesses’)
Managers & Employees identify and list new or improved behaviors that give
the employee the opportunity to grow to higher levels in the organization
• Wrap up
Manager and Employees summarize the discussion by identifying what goals
have been established, and make specific plans for a follow up meeting to
check up on progress
Effective Questions to start off employee appraisal discussions
• What is most surprising to you about your performance appraisal scores?
This question will help narrow attention and focus to areas that are concerns to the employee.
Establishing these priorities will save time and address issues most important to the employee.
• What score(s) do you think is most on target? Why?
This question will help employees establish confidence as they gravitate toward good scores that
communicate success. It might also give an employee the opportunity to identify lower scores
they agree with and need to improve on.
• What score(s) do you think are off target? Why?
This question allows the employee an opportunity to address places where they feel that they
received too little or too much credit. Managers have to be accepting and open to a difference of
opinion at this phase of the process. This is a good time to establish that a difference of opinion is
ok- and that what is more important is that the manager and the employee come together to
discuss strategies that will work in the future.
• What new behaviors and strategies do you think will have the biggest impact
on increasing your overall score?
This question allows managers to see if the employee is focused on the same solutions that the
manager is focused on. It is important for managers to clarify positions and to leave the employee
feeling that with a bit more focus and effort that improvement is within reach.
Express confidenceduring your exchanges. Avoid being defensive concerning areas of disagreement.
Steer clear of hurtful language, and or personal attacks. Remember to set up a date in the near
future to check on progress.
4 Fears that
Impact Personal Growth

“I’m not going to give 100%, that way if I am uncomfortable I can

• Fear of Ridicule
“People are going to make fun of my decision to go in a new
direction, especially if I struggle at first”
• Fear of Failure

back and see that my comfort zone is gone”
• Fear of the Unknown
